I continued south on foot from the Meiji Shrine until I reached the main part of Shibuya for a short visit. Shibuya is one of Tokyo’s major hubs for shopping and entertainment but on this occasion I just wanted to do the Shibuya Scramble once or twice and get a shot of the Hachiko Memorial. It was mid-afternoon when I was in Shibuya, so the street crossing wasn’t nearly as crowded as during rush hour, but there were still hundreds of people crossing each time. After participating in the Scramble I got my photo of Hachiko before going into Shibuya Station. Hachiko was a local dog that famously waited in the same spot every day for his master to get off work. A line of people were taking photos with the Hachiko statue and I thought about getting in line myself but since I needed to get to Odaiba Island next I decided to continue on my way.
Tokyo looks like an amazing place to explore and photograph, it’s one of the places I would love to visit one day. Never heard the story about the dog before, thanks for sharing, I guess you learn something new every day. Aiva

Thanks! Tokyo is a great place to visit and hopefully one day you’ll be able to get out there. Over the next few months I’ll be steadily publishing more photos from Tokyo (and many other places in Japan and Korea) so you can look forward to many more views of the city.
